  • Description

Lrrk1 - Lrrk2 knockout rat

Nomenclature: LEH- Lrrk1-Lrrk2 tm1sage

Origin: Developed in collaboration with The Michael J. Fox Foundation, this model is a double knockout that contains deletions of both the Lrrk2 gene, encoding for the leucine-rich repeat kinase 2, as well as the Lrrk1 gene, encoding for the leucine-rich repeat kinase 1. Mutations in Lrrk2 are the most common monogenic cause of Parkinson’s disease. This model is useful in understanding Lrrk biology.
